It's Monday, it's Houses of Hawk Run Hollow night. I kept plugging away still on House 5. It is moving along well now, and when it is finished I will have seven of twelve blocks finished. I am not sure how the white birds (doves?) at the bottom of this block will look in the end, as the two colors that will be stitched around them to provide background are also pretty light. Ah well, this is my pastel version :-)
Thank you so much Heather!! We just traded charts - I recieved Secret Snowdrift by The Trilogy (I fell in love with this when she stitched it a while back), and I sent her my extra copy of SB's Happy Heart! Great trade! Somehow, even though we live in opposite corners of this wide country (New Hampshire and Oregon), the post only takes about two days between our houses! Amazing! I wish mail to Canada was as quick!!
Also, huge thank yous and hugs to Deb - I received a beautiful belated birthday package from her today full of lovely stationery items! I will try to take a photo tomorrow to share the pretties. They are so cool!
Taken 7/24/07.... not sure what this pretty daylily is. I bought it on ebay a few years back. When it bloomed, I saw that it was not the cultivar I bid on (big surprise - happens all the time on ebay, sneaky sellers) - but I do love this one anyhow! It blooms under my laundry room window. It is so tall you can see the blooms above my windowsill. Despite it being an ebay bust, it turned out to be one of my favorites :-) I wish I could remember what I thought I was getting - LOL!
Stitched on today: Seasonal Exchangers project, started a gift, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
